Australia's Minjee Lee Wins her first Major at the Evian Championship


LPGA & LET in France: Amundi Evian Championship 2021, Évian-les-Bains, 22-25th July

Minjee Lee win's her first major, ...after starting the day seven shots back!

From Golfweek, by Beth Ann Nichols:

Minjee Lee started the day seven shots back at the Amundi Evian Championship and ended it with a record-tying victory, joining idol Karrie Webb and Patty Sheehan with the largest come-from-behind triumphs in LPGA major championship history.

Lee, 25, becomes the ninth consecutive first-time major winner on the LPGA and the 14th in the last 15 majors. Long considered one of the best LPGA players without a major, Lee finally shed that distinction with her sixth LPGA title.

She joins Hannah Green, Jan Stephenson and Karrie Webb as Australian major champs.  Read more here
